                Proclamation 8602 of November 16, 2010

                
American Education Week, 2010

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Education is essential to our success as both a people 
                and a Nation. During American Education Week, we 
                rededicate ourselves to providing a complete and 
                competitive education for every student, from cradle 
                through career.

                In an increasingly interconnected world, our leadership 
                and prosperity depend on the standard and quality of 
                education that we establish for our students. In order 
                to maintain our Nation's role as the world's engine of 
                discovery and innovation, my Administration is 
                committed to ensuring that America has the best-
                educated citizenry in the world.

                To foster the next generation of great American 
                leaders, we must continue to invest in education at all 
                levels, work with States and districts to improve our 
                educational system, and encourage reforms that ensure 
                the development of our students and teachers. We have 
                also set a goal of once again having the highest 
                proportion of college graduates of any country across 
                the globe by the year 2020.

                 Educators and school employees must also strive to 
                provide our students with the tools needed to access a 
                fulfilling and prosperous future. Students are able to 
                reach for their dreams when teachers, parents, and 
                communities support their efforts and insist upon 
                excellence.

                 Education has always been central to ensuring 
                opportunity, and to instilling in all our citizens the 
                defining American values of freedom, equality, and 
                respect for one another. Our Nation's schools can give 
                students the tools, skills, and knowledge to 
                participate fully in our democracy, and to succeed in 
                college, career, and life. This week, let us reaffirm 
                the importance of education and recognize that we all 
                share in the responsibility to educate our students.

                 NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim November 14 through 
                November 20, 2010, as American Education Week. I call 
                upon all Americans to observe this week by supporting 
                their local schools through appropriate activities, 
                events, and programs designed to help create 
                opportunities for every school and student in America.
